Question

MCQ

The longest United Nations climate talks on record have finally ended in [1] with a compromise deal. Exhausted delegates reached agreement on the key question of increasing the global response to curbing carbon. All countries will need to put new climate pledges on the table by the time of the next major conference in Glasgow next year. Divisions over other questions - including carbon markets - were delayed until the next gathering. After two extra days and nights of negotiations, delegates finally agreed a deal that will see new, improved carbon-cutting plans on the table by the time of the Glasgow conference next year.

However a compromise was agreed with the richer nations having to show that they have kept their promises on climate change in the years before 2020.
